Prime minister Narendra Modi yesterday (5th April) endorsed R. Madhavan’s Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, based on the life of Nambi Narayanan, a former aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). He said that the film dealt with an important topic about which more people should know.
Modi reacted to a tweet of Madhavan who, incidentally, has turned director with this film in which he also plays the lead role, by tweeting: “Happy to have met you and the brilliant Nambi Narayananji. This film covers an important topic, which more people must know about. Our scientists and technicians have made great sacrifices for our country, glimpses of which I could see in the clips of Rocketry.” Nambi Narayanan and Madhavan had called on the Prime Minister two weeks back.
